Yes, this is the same man who penned the classic novel, “The Great Gatsby”!
This rare, hilarious snapshot was taken in 1916 as part of the promotions for “The Evil Eye,” in which Fitzgerald performed and whose lyrics he also wrote. Fitzgerald was in his third year at Princeton University then and part of the musical-comedy troupe, Princeton Triangle Club.
The verdict? The Times was said to have described Fitzgerald as “the most beautiful” girl in the play! Based on this photo alone, we’d have to agree that Mr. Fitzgerald did make a fine lady!
